Dear Learning Community,
After several online-only events on MOOCs and e-learning, we are especially pleased to invite you to our next on-site openHPI Forum in Potsdam in November.
openHPI Forum - November 24, 2021.
The half-day event on our campus in Potsdam-Griebnitzsee will focus on the question of "Online learning on openHPI - What have we learned from two years of pandemic?" We are looking forward to numerous exciting contributions from HPI scientists, partners and renowned university experts. Heini Utunen from the World Health Organization will talk about developments on the OpenWHO learning platform during the pandemic. Members of HPI will put numbers on the boom of the last two years and show what other formats (besides MOOCs) are being implemented on openHPI, for example by looking at the clean-IT forum or how student classes are taught. Cordula Torner will present the Fellowship Program for the AI Campus, an offer that supports university lecturers in using content from the learning platform for artificial intelligence in teaching.
In a panel discussion, representatives from universities and course providers will discuss what makes a good online course. In addition, there will be plenty of time during the breaks to exchange ideas and get together in a relaxed atmosphere. We look forward to welcoming you on Wednesday, November 24 from 2-6 p.m. at the Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam! The event will be in German. Participation is free.

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in Practice
Today, the new openHPI course on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning starts (in German language). Be there when the two master's students Johannes Hötter and Christian Warmuth–who many already know from last year's successful course "Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning for Beginners"–now focus on projects in practice.
A big plus: This course looks at specific, real-world use cases, among them is the sentiment analysis of newspaper articles. With this approach, participants can understand the challenges and opportunities of these technologies even better.

Connected Healthcare - Capturing and analyzing health data in everyday life
How can we measure and analyze health-related data in everyday life and use it to stay healthy or become healthy? This is the question Prof. Dr. Bert Arnrich and his teaching team are exploring in the two-week German-language course “Connected Healthcare,” which starts on October 13, 2021. Many are already familiar with the smartwatch, which measures health data via sensors—but there are many more examples that you will learn about in the course. “Connected Health” is interdisciplinary, and it includes knowledge from health sciences as well as sensor technology and Data Science, the field of data processing.
We look forward to your participation and lively discussion in the course.
